A HUGE thank you to Taylor Baumann (14), Cameron Baumann (11) and Nico Jenni (15) who held a lemonade and bake sale to help the kids in the village programs. Together they raised an amazing $1,100 for WATV. This is so fantastic and means so much to everyone. You have put a lot of smiles on everyone's faces.

On the one year anniversary of the passing of WATV's co-founder, we remain endeared to the memory of Julianna Matyas and the mission she established for the charity - to assist children to participate in extra-curricular activities that they otherwise could not afford to do because of family circumstances. Julianna's presence will always be with us as we build and grow the charity.
